Protect Your Overall Health With Composite Fillings
Mercury is a neurotoxin but did you know that it is also the main ingredient in your metal fillings? Other elements include tin, copper, and zinc but mercury represents roughly half of the mixture. If you have metal fillings, you may want to consider safe amalgam removal on the Upper East Side. Dr. Gerry Curatola, Rejuvenation Dentist, replaces metal fillings with composite to improve your overall health as well as the beauty of your smile.
The Dangers Of Mercury Exposure During Removal Of Amalgam
Cutting into a metal filling can create small particles that may be contaminated with mercury. These can be swallowed during the procedure and circulate into the bloodstream.
Mercury vapors can be emitted when the metal comes into contact with a dental bur, in the same manner that mercury vapor is released when you chew or grind your teeth. They may be breathed into the lungs and absorbed into the body.
